Pentagon confirms development of hypersonic weapons

A Defense Department spokesman on Friday confirmed that the Pentagon is developing hypersonic weapons. The statement came close on the heels of a claim by President Trump around the existence of a ’super duper missile’. ’You’ve heard Russia has five times and China’s working on five or six times, we have one 17 times’ faster, Trump touted.

A super duper missile sounds good. How much does one of them cost? I think having a way to defeat a supr missile might be useful as well. Get some of them too.

Well, the Phoenix missile was a hypersonic air to air missile the navy used to use, it reached about Mach 6 at top speed. But they were ridiculously expensive and they were developed on the 50s-60s so they phased them out in the early 90s if memory serves. That design and the research data would likely help for what he is talking about. Or if it's a strategic weapon, we already have that technically with the Thor missile satellite, but that is limited in ammo and costly to reload.
